It was amazing how a lie printed in one the government sanctioned papers could turn it in to truth. Of course, he had seen it all before. This was how it would start. The government would reassure the world that all was well, while publicly denying all things mutant.

Steve couldn’t have run faster to get to the hospital. He had to tell (Name), and Alicia. They caught the bad guy, and on top of that, Steve got to beat him down, too. It was easily one of the best days of his life, by far.
He crossed the block, noting that he wasn’t too far from the park. Which meant a few turns here and there down a few streets, and there was the hospital. And there would be (Name).
He was a little more careful with the people this time around, not knocking anyone over and being slightly more polite than earlier. He couldn’t help it; the level of relief he felt, knowing that at least a part of the battle was won, made him feel so much better than before.
He wouldn’t let (Name) be hurt, ever again. No more nightmares, no more bruises, no more hospitals. Even if the threat wasn’t totally neutralized, he at least managed to clear one hulking barrier (pun not intended). After (Name) was home with him, safe and sound, then he’d fo

I was denied my hope

“Dude, no way! I totally saw Spider-man outside my window last night!” boomed some guy a few lockers down from your own.
“No way, he was with me the whole night! He’s my boyfriend, duh.” answered back a pretty yet stuck-up brunette. The giggle following right after made you want to claw your eardrums out as you ravaged through your disorganized locker.
“Hey, wait… I thought I was your boyfriend,” interjected another guy, possibly the actual boyfriend of the said brunette.
You let out an exasperated sigh as you shoved a few papers to the back of your locker.
‘Where the heckie did my math homework go?’ You grumbled softly to yourself as you made a mental list to clean out your locker sometime this week after school.
“I could’ve sworn I put it in here last week…” A low rumble began in your chest, moving slowly up your throat as you were about to make a noise similar to that of a walru

You made a fool of yourself that day. There was no doubt in your mind that told you otherwise. Yet you still managed to make Peter laugh, though you were assuming it was because he was feeling uncomfortable when you began to accuse him of stalking you.
Well, it turned out that you two had been attending the same schools since middle school. Who would have thought, eh? Throughout the rest of that class, you had completely dismissed the classwork you two were supposed to complete to try to gather up all the thoughts from middle school to at least figure out if what he said was true.
You had looked over at him when from the corner of your eye you could see he was trying to hide the uncomfortable look on his face. The look of complete concentration vanished from your face as you turned to him.
“What’s with the look?” you demanded.
He looked back at you and it looked like he was trying his hardest not to seem rude. “It’s just that… Do you need to g

Steve sighed impatiently, practically itching to get out of the unmarked car he and Natasha had already logged more than enough hours in. He was ready to get (Name) out and at least try to make her life a little better than it had been so far.
“Hey, calm down already.” Natasha chided from the driver’s seat. She, of course, was going to be the one to drive. It made sense, seeing as letting that man drive now would result in driving 200 MPH over the speed limit.
“Sorry.” He apologized, stopping his foot which had been tapping incessantly on the floor. “I’m just ready to get (Name) out of there.”
“Ha, yeah, I know. But getting anxious and anticipating isn’t going to make this go any faster. If anything, it’ll make things go a lot slower.” She replied. He sighed again, this time more relaxed.

Ororos first impression of Wade Wilson was good. He was cute and funny, and the positive effect he had on Logans peace of mind was only slightly less obvious than the nose on her face.
Then again, the first time she met Wade Wilson, she had about five minutes before students would start pouring into the study for college-level world history, and all Wade had the time to do before she asked him to wait in the hall was smile, wave, and say, Sup, Cocoa Pebbles? (immediately followed by Logan putting a hand over Wades mouth).
Logan warned her about their shared para-military past, and about Wades shaky grasp on concepts like nonviolence, sharing, and consequences. Treat him like a four-year-old who never shuts up and always manages to get his paws on sharp, dangerous objects, Logan had said. A little worrying, but theyd dealt with all manner of mental instability, including thi

Aerith awoke to the smell of breakfast being cooked. Stumbling through her morning routine, the last Cetra moved robotically until she finally managed to wake herself up enough to greet the rest of the world.
Her first surprise of the day as she left her bedroom, however, was to see her step-mother coming out of her own room. Elmyra, too, seemed to be surprised to see Aerith. For a minute, the two Gainsborough women stared at each other with questioning looks, confused as to who would be cooking the morning meal.
Suddenly, the young Cetra remembered the strange woman from yesterday- Grace Lunaria, also known as Katlyn Lune. Quickly walking towards the kitchen with Elmyra close behind, the two paused when they suddenly heard music. It was very dramatic-sounding, uplifting yet with a sad tone. As suddenly the music quieted, Aerith and her step-mother peeked into the kitchen.

A video played across the huge screen of the conference room, one of a teenage girl. A girl about the same age as (Name). She even had the same fish scales and water powers that (Name) had, and was using them with the same power and skills that she had the day Steve had met her.
She was always so fragile and quiet, even calm when she wasn’t dehydrated. Perfectly sane and in her right state of mind. But here she was, right in front of him, slashing up random people left and right. Blood was covering her face, her arms and her body as she slaughtered the men like they were animals. Her laugh was insane and sadistic, like a screeching banshee who’s extremely ticklish. He grimaced at the sight, and took it upon himself to stop the video and take it off the screen. He just couldn’t watch any more of it.
“...This is why she’s here right now.” Fury said quietly from the long table, one hand resting on top of it as he watched Cap’s shoulders sag.

And unfortunately for (Name), it happened to be a Thursday so bad it just happened to cross over into her Friday. Normally, Thursdays were pretty okay days for her. In fact, sometimes Thursdays were so good she liked them more than Fridays. But this was just one of those days where she needed to get away from her weekdays. Get away from people. Her house.

Bucky had found himself a relatively decent home after the demise of SHIELD, HYDRA and his retirement from being the Winter Soldier. It’d been about seven months or so, and here he was, in a rather large house tucked away in a forest clearing. A woman had been staying there, but when he came up asking for help, she screamed and ran. Only after Bucky cut her communications and threatened her if she tried to tell anyone about his location.
She hadn’t come back in a few weeks, so she must have just jumped ship and left the house to him. Which was fine, at least as long as didn’t have to pay the bills.
It was relatively calm that night, Bucky lounging on the rather posh couch in the living room. He was currently flipping through the channels, trying to get a decent idea of what was going on in the news and what the status was on SHIELD. And the government/politics segment was about to start when he heard the front door lock being picked, and then opened and slammed shut h

It's been a hard day's night, my love.
Tonight, I want to hold your hand and draw you close to me.
Love, love me do, for though tired, I feel fine.
And here's a rose, from me to you, dear one.
At times I've doubted your love, but all my friends keep

she looks at you." Yet, like some delusional day tripper, I

In the end, I've learned a simple truth: I can't buy me love.
No, I could work eight days a week and still never give to
you what you truly deserve; the best of everything!
There have been times when I've felt I should quit this mundane
job, maybe become a paperback writer. But then, no, or
perhaps make a living by the sea, sailing to the ocean depths in a
